The federal government of the United States of America had not made any further announcement of offering additional stimulus checks to the citizens. On the other hand, several states all over the US decided to provide relief aid to their residents. This came as a great relief since the Americans were suffering from the worst inflation they ever experienced. Americans have been struggling to stay afloat during this time of rising prices and the unstable financial situation post-COVID.
Despite such difficult economic conditions, the central US government prevented the authorization of the 4th stimulus check across the nation to eligible citizens.
Inflation Calls For Stimulus Check
Americans have already received stimulus checks on a national level. In addition, they also received inflation-relief payments as well as tax rebates. Most of these payments were offered by the US states in 2022 and have been distributed. However, this worsening inflation is witnessing demands for further stimulus checks.
Congress has already been divided over the 4th stimulus check since May 2022 which was soon after the emergency situation of COVID-19 ended. Nonetheless, the federal government still seems on the fence about it.
No Further Stimulus Payment
The main reason behind the central US government not providing additional relief payments is due to inflation. Fortunately, US states may offer additional payments owing to the considerable surplus in the budget at the moment. Unspent relief funds received from the central government along with increased tax revenue can be utilized to provide financial aid to common people.
It seems Americans may see their demands coming to fruition as their respective state may provide stimulus payments from the surplus budget. Raising voices and demanding financial support may urge the state government to come to a decision sooner.
